Cop And Other Busted With Illegal Guns…

A team from the Narcotics divi­sion car­ried out a sur­veil­lance oper­a­tion at the Portmore fish­ing vil­lage (Causeway). A joint mil­i­tary team from the St Catherine South divi­sion joined and car­ried a raid upon which two motor vehi­cles were seen and two men appre­hend­ed. One of the vehi­cles, a white Probox motor vehi­cle, is report­ed­ly owned by a police Corporal assigned to the St Andrew North divi­sion. The oth­er vehi­cle is a blue Nissan Caravan minibus.

A Police Corporal who report­ed­ly works at the Constant Spring police sta­tion was appre­hend­ed in den­im uni­form, adorned with police accou­ter­ments. He was searched, and a ser­vice pis­tol was seized from him. Another man who stat­ed that he’s a fish­er­man and a boat cap­tain from port roy­al was found in the police­man’s car.
A pre­lim­i­nary search was done of the minibus; two ille­gal firearms were observed in a bag. Two buck­ets were also seen, but the con­tents were not known at this time. An unde­ter­mined sum of mon­ey was also observed.

Both men were hand­cuffed detained. DSP Hopton Nicholson, Inspector Ian Purrier (SCS shift com­man­der), Woman Inspector Maxine Bernard (Narcotics) are present­ly on loca­tion. Scene of crime per­son­nel is on the way to start pro­cess­ing the scene.
Corporal Maugin Romacan of the Narcotics Division is investigating.
